This little hole-in-the-wall produces some really good food and tasty margaritas. We got the shredded chicken tacos and the carnitas tacos. Reminded me of the tacos we got in the old city of Cancun. Idont go there expecting to get a table on a Friday or Saturday night, but it does take-out and you can bring your drink out on... More

This place is a little hole in the wall but the food is fresh and amazing. The baja taco is absolutely delicious. I just wish they delivered.

Teeny tiny restaurant off the parking lot was a pleasant surprise. A bit of a wait on a Saturday night but I guess that is par for the course when you have just a handful of tables. Delicious taco's and very reasonable prices. Margarita hit the spot! Seems they do a lot of takeout business. They don't have a large... More

Great off the beaten track spot for tacos, barritos and more. Nice cold beers and a small space that's fun to be in. Located behind the main stores on Deer Park Ave it's got a off the main drag feel. Great place for lunch but it does get crowded.

Even though this a upcoming new restaurant I have to say the staff is extremely nice. The food is awesome very filling. Prices are reasonable. I do see in the near future this place expanding. This restaurant is always crowded but that's great because the food is worth waiting for.

My friends always eat the tacos here and I have a burrito and we totally love it. Listen to the specials they are usually great. Count with some waiting time because that place is very tiny but always packed. The staff is super friendly. Would recommend it.
